Crafts Shows R Us #7: The Good, the Bad, and the Horrible

2082 days ago by closetguy | 5 comments »

Ok, it was not quite crash and burn, but I got second degree burns from the Christmas in Lithia show this past weekend. I did make my booth fee and enough extra to buy groceries for two days, so I guess there is a bright side in there somewhere. You have to look hard. In its 23rd year, this show is held at a local high school and was highly rated by local crafters. There were around 140 crafters. It was by far the easiest to unload and load into of all my shows. That is the only good ...

Test Drive Five Popular Hand Planes Types

2082 days ago by Keith Cruickshank | 4 comments »

I know that most of us covet that next slick power tool. I’m like that too. But I’ve also come to appreciate hand planes for their ability to make quick work of tasks that can’t be done easily by machine. In this video we take a look at five types of hand planes that are commonly found in wood shops. By the way, if you’re a regular WoodTreks viewer, you know that usually I’m behind the camera, featuring some of America’s top artisans. But to mix things...

Moral of the Story: Don't Click too Fast!

2082 days ago by robbinscabin | 8 comments »

Dinner was on the stove doing it’s thing…It wouldn’t need my attention for a while so I thought I’d give myself a bit of time with my new hobby…checking out the new happenings on LumberJocks. It’s nearly as addicting as woodworking itself! So here’s where things went wrong! I glanced at the featured Lumber Jock and his 5 projects. Very nice. I love the random Lumber Jock feature! Then I scrolled down to the “Recent Projects”. I saw ...

Setting Up Shop #3: A few of my favorite far.

2082 days ago by David A. P. | 0 comments »

Being supremely lazy, and having already made some pithy and amusing (at least, amusing to me) comments on a list of my favorite tools—at least, at the point that I wrote it up—I’m going to link to my Amazon Listmania list here. I’ve gotten stuff since then, of course, and I have even more interesting and fun stuff to say…but that will be in the next (-ish) post. Hopefully this is at least somewhat useful!

Building a Light Box/Light Tent #1: Building a Light Box

2083 days ago by Tim Dorcas | 4 comments »

In another life, photography was my hobby. (You can check out some of my photographs here.) While I have created lots of projects that I wanted to upload, everytime I tried to take pictures of them, they would come out like crap. You can still see examples of this in my earlier projects. I initially was going to buy a light tent just to improve the quality of my projects to upload. I went to a couple of local photo shops but the least expensive kit started at $149. Walmart had a kit for$70...

kitchen Cabinets #3: Bought the Plywood

2083 days ago by Ben | 4 comments »

I finally went out and spent the money on the plywood for the lower cabinet carcasses. I got five sheets of red oak ply from my local hard woods supply store. The last time I had made some cabinets I had just finished watching Norm’s kitchen remodel on “The New Yankee Workshop.” On that show, he use prefinished ply to make the carcases. I did the same thing and it was fantastic. I didn’t have to work to get into the corners or the recesses of the cabinets to finis...
